Good morning.


The Magi brought Jesus three gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. These gifts have special significance in the Old Testament and reflect the One they came to worship?


Gold represents royalty, and the gift of gold affirmed Jesus as the King of Kings. Frankincense is related to the worship of God and the gift of frankincense acknowledges that Jesus is God Myrrh was used to anoint people for special purposes. This gift points to the special purpose of Jesus’ life: He would die on the cross to save us from our sins and then be raised to life, victorious over death.


We worship Jesus as our King because He has “all authority on heaven and earth”. We worship Jesus as our God because “through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made”. And we worship Jesus as our Savior because “God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life”.


We trust that this Christmas season we will be brought closer to Jesus through worship, just like the star brought the Magi to worship Him.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
